Massive amounts of data move as messages between applications, systems and services at any given time. If an application isn’t ready or if there’s a service interruption, messages and transactions can be lost or duplicated, costing businesses time and money to make things right.
IBM has expertly refined MQ over more than 25 years in the market. With MQ, if a message can’t be delivered immediately, it’s secured in a queue where it waits until delivery is assured. Where competitors may deliver messages twice or not at all, MQ moves data, including file data, once — and once only. Never lose a message with MQ.
Acting as a messaging center between applications on varied platforms, MQ connects virtually everything wherever it is, reducing integration time and cost, and reliably moving messages.
Secure by design — with built-in high availability and disaster recovery — MQ protects data at rest, in-flight and in-memory through fine-grained authentication and powerful data encryption.
Because MQ handles connection and message retries for you, it frees developers to spend time on more critical initiatives. It also easily scales to seamlessly manage changes in transaction volumes.
Integrate disparate application data to enhance the customer experience
A retailer uses IBM MQ to access and integrate historical customer data and shopper behavior from disparate applications to personalize its offers at the point of engagement. The merchant can gain insight into customer preferences and spending tendencies, and use the data to anticipate customers’ needs and provide an exceptional customer experience.
